Thread: Smoking on startup

    Smoking on startup

    Had my 2002 K12 shipped from Michigan to Florida in October. Just started bike tonight after arriving. Bike used to smoke a little from sitting, but it cleared up almost immediately. Tonight, the bike smoked continuously as long as it was running. Not a small amount either. Bike was also running a little on the warm side as well, but the fans kicked in and the temp settled down to normal. I am concerned about the excessive smoke though. Any words of wisdom? It's been sitting on the side stand since delivery.

    I would take it for a ride and expect the smoking to clear within a few miles. If not you have an issue.

    Did exactly that this morning. Smoke and smell cleared within 15 minutes. Must have been because of it sitting on the side stand so long.

    Make sure to recheck the oil level and top off as needed.
